We stopped at this hotel on our way to Richmond, VA from San Antonio, one of eight nights we spent in the IHG family of hotels during our vacation. The hotel was close to the University of Alabama and was in immaculate condition. We could not ask for better facilities or accomodations. The room was spotless and not lacking in... More

We stayed one night at this hotel. It just happened to be the same night that a bunch of youth soccer players were also staying. The pool was full of screaming elementary schooled kids and pretentious parents. Not our idea of fun. So, we skipped the pool in favor of checking out the University, which was nearby. We also spent... More

The Holiday Inn Express in Tuscaloosa is the best place to stay! Friendly, clean, close to restaurants and shopping. Perfect for game days. The trolley to the stadium is right across the stadium. They always host a wonderful reception on the Friday nights before Alabama games.

We stayed here while moving our son into the University of Alabama. The hotel is close to campus and shopping. Super friendly staff and the hotel was very clean. The breakfast offered many healthy food choices which are sometimes hard to find. Given the close proximity to the school, shopping and restaurants we will make this our hotel of choice... More

This hotel was everything I expected from Holiday Inn, great room, great service, I love to stay at these hotels, the font desk staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good, bacon, eggs, omelets, biscuits and gravy and many more items, just about everything that most people could want in a breakfast. This is my second time staying there... More

The Holiday Inn Express in Tuscaloosa is like any other moderately priced hotel. It’s a cookie-cutter experience that you can find anywhere. Although you go in without very high expectations, you do expect to be treated with a certain level of respect and professionalism from the hotel staff. Unfortunately, no one told Kelly at the front desk about this. From... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn on a recent trip to the UofA campus. While the property is not "right next door" it was a short drive away so I would definitely recommend it for a campus visit. We were there for only a day so we really didn't take advantage of all the hotel amenities but from appearances they... More

This was one of the nicest Holiday Inn properties we have ever stayed at. The room was huge & clean & the bathroom unbelievably clean. The bed was probably the most comfortable bed we slept in on a trip in a long while. Check-in even though late was very efficient & the desk clerk couldn't have been nicer. Breakfast the... More

We have stayed here 3 years in a row. It has always been a great place but the rooms are starting to show age and we know this because we've had the same room two years in a row. This year I noticed bath tub was looking rough and things are falling apart. Room is still comfy, with coffee maker,... More

We decided to keep driving after the nearest Holiday inn Express reviews were not so great. We drove an extra hour to get here and it was well worth it. A perfect room, meticulously clean, everything in the room is brand new. The bed was the most comfortable bed ever. The breakfast was delicious. They had everything from freshly baked... More
